Site suggestion - Build Tracking Answered


I was thinking that it would be beneficial to be able to keep a list of other peoples Instructables that I have built.  Sometimes I forget what all I have made and like to look back over them.  Since I have built projects using existing Instructables I don't want to duplicate them by writing up my own of the same thing. 

It would be neat if there was a "I've built this" button or check box on each instructable, maybe in the comments section or something.  Then not only could I look in my profile and see what I've made, but could look at an instructable and see who/or how many people have made it.  As an author it would be cool to see that someone has successfully built something I came up with. 

Whatcha think?

I like the idea for the location of the check box/button! The pictures are really helpful.

Just when I think I've got an original Idea....

At least I got props from Kiteman on my pics.

:-D The picture is awesome. You might consider sending it (or rather, the link to it) as an e-mail directly to the "Customer Service" address at the bottom of every page. The code monkeys don't always notice forum topics, but that e-mail will get forwarded appropriately, and it might even get added to the "to do" list.

along the same lines, we need to have a button, "You can't build this" to answer the many "What can I do with the LCD display panel out of a broken computer monitor or other electronic device", perpetual motion machines, travelling faster than the speed of light, time travel machine...maybe not the last one.

I've always liked this idea, and this is the best visualisation so far.
